Deputy Managing Director of Fidelity Bank Ghana, Julian Kingsley Opuni, has reiterated the commitment of the bank to supporting healthcare delivery in the country.
“The health sector is very important to Fidelity Bank, as we have been engaged in various healthcare related partnerships through USAID; funding of the Medical Credit Fund, various hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry,” he stated.
Speaking at a ceremony to present ventilators to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital by Fidelity Bank, Mr Opuni said it’s impossible to make inroads in the health sector without partnering an institution like KATH.
“We engaged the management of KATH and realized that ventilators were urgently needed by the hospital. We have come to present the ventilators and also find out what other assistance we can give to the hospital.”
He disclosed that a few years ago, the bank partnered KATH to create uniformity and structure in the collection of monies and also make it easier to monitor funds.
In addition, he said that the bank also organized customer service training for the hospital to help in the delivery of services to patients.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of KATH, Dr Oheneba Owusu-Danso, who received the ventilators stated, “The hospital currently needs six ventilators, and this noble gesture from Fidelity Bank comes at the right time and we very much appreciate it.”
He revealed that “we will deepen our relationship with the bank and also request them to give more support to the hospital.”
Aside the health sector, Fidelity Bank has over the years initiated projects to support other key areas of the economy like education and agriculture.
